COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. George American Brown Ale is the typical American take on a classic English style. This beer exhibits an assertive American hop character overlying a malty richness which lends it a slightly sweet, toasty flavor and aroma. Dark brown in color with a thick tan head our American Brown Ale is a brewed from a full malt base and is well balanced by a spicy/citrusy hop bitterness.

Nice looking beer - dark reddish brown, tan head. Aroma of nuts and roasted malted. Can taste and feel the chocolate malt in the palate , adds some depth and the chocolate taste. I liked this one, thanks Ron.

Aroma is pretty nutty and mildly sweet. Dark brown with slight red hues and a thumb thick slowly fading tan head. Flavor is mildly toasted malt int he fore with some sweet and nuttier malt in the middle and finish. Thicker than many porters I have had. Very solid Brown Ale.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing remained speckling around the sides of the glass. The smell was rich and roasty through a nice nutty caramel blend. Light cocoa in the background. The taste was enthusiastically sweet nutty and had a nice caramel to cocoa blend underneath. On the palate, it sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation was pretty smooth. There was a nice creamy richness coating my tongue. Overall, this was a really nice brown ale that I would have again.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - MAR 9, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a deep chestnut brown with a nice half inch off white head that slowly settled. Aroma is dark, roasty malts, toasted nuts, caramel, and cocoa with a hint of piny hops. Flavor is well balanced between roasty, caramel malt, chocolate, and a pleasantly bitter bite of pine and floral hops through the finnish. Body is medium, with a slick, creamy texture and fizzy mouthfeel from the high carbonation.

Dark pour smells malty and rich. Taste is pretty good actually, the best bunch of my mixed 6 pack from these guys. Went down easy, cracking the next beer after it made me wish I had another one of these. Pretty good.

Capa (2029) - Manama, BAHRAIN - MAY 15, 2011
Deep brown pour with a thin brown head. Chocolate, molasses, toasted malts, milk aroma. Medium, smooth body. Chocolate flavor with toasted malt, molasses, biscuit, and a lightly herbal, fruity hop finish. Light bitterness. Very nice, full fledged brown.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUN 5, 2006
12 oz bottle. Mahogany pour with a beige head. Soft, nutty nose, chocolate notes are there. Nice lace. Nutty, slightly sweet flavor with hazelnut undertones. Bitter finish, a bit of chocolate. Solid offering, much better than the Tavern (nut brown).

Robust chocolate malt aroma. Very dark amber color with a medium tan head. Sweet chocolate taste with a light bitterness mixed into the finish. Creamy palate.

bubbleflubber (1833) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Deep walnut pour that had a huge brown overflowing head... quite active. The aromas are comforting, especially after warming a bit. I pick up caramel and figs, malt and syrup. The flavor is indeed "nutty", with an overlay of smoky roasts and a hint of a coffee finish. Nice malt interwoven in there, as well. Well-complementary hopped backpull is nice to round out an otherwise dull palate. Not bad overall.

guzzler67 (1503) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 11, 2007
Deep brown appearance; small, off whte head and light lacing. Roasted malt aroma, some dark fruit, and layers of chocolate. Chocolate malt taste with modest sweetness, some characteristics of pine nuts; hops more noticable as it finishes. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel. Dry nutty aftertaste.
